SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Gov. Jerry Brown signed a bill Thursday making California the first state in the nation to add lessons about gays and lesbians to social studies classes in public schools.
Brown, a Democrat, signed the landmark bill requiring public schools to include the contributions of people who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender in social studies curriculum.
I’d die happy if I never had to see this headline again. How does this continue to be a journalistic question? What year is it? Seriously? Still?
OMG TIM OMG.
oh dear god, yes.
Drum lessons start this Friday from my uncle who still has his set in the basement from 30 years ago. #GPOYW
Man, talk about having a bad day…
I can’t imagine watching this show with out having read the books and already knowing everything that’s going to happen. No one is safe people, no one!
this week’s embarrassments to date-
1. Got drinks with a cute boy/ Got drunk and talked to cute boy about my ovaries. (Guys love that, right?)
2. Cried in front of my ex-boyfriend because he was being really nice to me. Apparently it makes me cry when people are nice to me. This does not speak well for my life.
3. Have had to explain to friends that I didn’t get a boob job, I’m on pills- to fix formerly discussed ovaries- that doubled the size of my chest. So yes, they are bigger. I know you noticed. Also, none of my shirts or dresses fit anymore.
Feel free to add your own to the list!

Dear Representative Bachmann,
My name is Amy Myers. I am a Cherry Hill, New Jersey sophomore attending Cherry Hill High School East. As a typical high school student, I have found quite a few of your statements regarding The Constitution of the United States, the quality of public school education and general U.S. civics matters to be factually incorrect, inaccurately applied or grossly distorted. The frequency and scope of these comments prompted me to write this letter.
Though I am not in your home district, or even your home state, you are a United States Representative of some prominence who is subject to national media coverage. News outlets and websites across this country profile your causes and viewpoints on a regular basis. As one of a handful of women in Congress, you hold a distinct privilege and responsibility to better represent your gender nationally. The statements you make help to serve an injustice to not only the position of Congresswoman, but women everywhere. Though politically expedient, incorrect comments cast a shadow on your person and by unfortunate proxy, both your supporters and detractors alike often generalize this shadow to women as a whole.
Rep. Bachmann, the frequent inability you have shown to accurately and factually present even the most basic information about the United States led me to submit the follow challenge, pitting my public education against your advanced legal education:
I, Amy Myers, do hereby challenge Representative Michele Bachmann to a Public Forum Debate and/or Fact Test on The Constitution of the United States, United States History and United States Civics.
Hopefully, we will be able to meet for such an event, as it would prove to be enlightening.
This… is epic.
